- Ripple shares have once again become available on Linqto, marking the second time in October that investors have access to these shares through the platform.
- As Ripple gains clarity on its standing with the SEC, the market speculates on the company’s potential move towards an initial public offering (IPO).
Democratizing Investment Opportunities: Linqto’s Role
Linqto, renowned for creating pathways for accredited investors to access shares of private companies, especially those on the brink of an IPO, has announced the return of Ripple shares to its platform. This development provides investors with another chance this month to get involved with the blockchain-based payment network.
Linqto stands out by not only facilitating the investment process but also offering resources for portfolio management and educational content aimed at demystifying the complexities of private equity. Investors, upon verifying their accredited status, can explore and invest in a range of companies, with Ripple being a notable option.
Ripple and the Road to an IPO
Speculations around Ripple’s ambitions for an IPO have been circulating for years, with discussions dating back to 2018. Ripple’s CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, in a May 2022 interview with CNBC, shared that the company would contemplate an IPO after settling its ongoing lawsuit with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC).
Adding to the intrigue, Ripple conducted a private roadshow in April, capturing the attention of major institutional investment entities and fuelling further speculation about an IPO on the horizon. This move coincided with a legal victory for Ripple, as Judge Analisa Torres ruled in favor of the company, stating that their XRP sales were not investment contracts.
With this legal clarity, the market is now keenly watching Ripple’s next steps, as the possibility of proceeding with an IPO becomes increasingly plausible. As Linqto restocks Ripple shares, accredited investors are presented with a unique opportunity to engage with a company at the forefront of blockchain innovation, positioned at the intersection of legal clarity and potential market expansion.
